The Night Has Eyes To Recognize Its Own

when your eyes are tired
the world is tired also

when your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you

time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own

there you can be sure
you are not beyond love

the dark will be your womb

the night will give you a horizon
further than you can see

you must learn one thing:
the world was made to be free in

give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong

sometimes it takes darkness
and the sweet confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you
